David Cameron was urged today to conduct an investigation into why the Conservative party received over £420000 from a telecoms company that has close links to Sri Lanka’s president, Lycamobile.
Speaking to the Huffington Post UK, Labour MP Tom Blenkinsop, said,
“The Prime Minister knows his party has received over £420000 from a company closely associated with the Sri Lankan regime. SO in the interests of transparency I want to know if the Prime Minister is going to investigate why his party has received over £420k from this company so closely associated with the Sri Lankan government.”
